Dr. Milovancev graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 and completed both rotating and surgical internships at the Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center in Norwalk, CT before matching to a Small Animal Surgery residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Afterwards he worked in private referral practice for two years prior to doing a clinical instructorship in Soft Tissue and Surgical Oncology at North Carolina State University and then started a tenure-track position at Oregon State University.
For the subsequent 10+ years his clinical and research focus was on surgical oncology and minimally invasive surgery. A few years after earning tenure, he elected to transition out of academia and into private referral practice to more completely dedicate his efforts to clinical service.
Outside of work, he enjoys cycling, hiking, backpacking, sailing, XC skiing, and travel. With his spouse, he cares for a mixed breed dog named Elsie, and a Siberian cat named Kiefer.
